How was this even considered to begin with?
The Ontario government has reversed a planned flag raising that would have taken place on Wednesday.
They were planning to fly the flag of Communist China, coinciding with China’s ‘national day.’
The insane plan caused a massive backlash, with Canadians noting how crazy it is to fly the flag of a foreign country on a Canadian government building, particularly the flag of a country that has kidnapped Canadians.
Pathetically, even in announcing the cancellation of the flag raising, the Ontario Legislature tried casting it as a health move:
“In light of the rising number of COVID-19 cases and the recommendations by Public Health authorities to be more vigilant than ever, the Legislative Assembly of Ontario has decided to cancel all flag-raising ceremonies until further notice.”
Conservative MP Michael Chong had earlier slammed the decision to fly the Chinese flag:
“I don’t think any order of government in Canada should be flying the flag of the People’s Republic of China while two Canadian citizens are wrongfully imprisoned in China. When governments fly a foreign flag it sends a certain signal,” said Chong.
The reversal is a good move, but this never should have even been considered. The fact that it was, speaks to a dangerous level of weakness and supplication within our country:
“China doesn’t fly the flag of Canada on July 1st, so why would we fly China’s flag on any Canadian government building? What kind of weak, supplicant attitude is that? It should never have even been considered. This kind of weak attitude is a serious problem in our country.”
